ReEvolution, the glorious second full-length from Pleasanton, California-based progressive metal supergroup CYNTHESIS, is now less than a week from release, the album to hit stores worldwide this , via Sensory Records.
In advance of the release of ReEvolution, today prog/metal outlet Sea Of Tranquility has hosted a stream of the album’s fourth epic track, "A Most Trivial Pursuit," musically containing some of the most somber passages of the album, and some of the storyline’s most pivotal elements.
Listen to "A Most Trivial Pursuit" now AT THIS LOCATION.
The album’s fifth track “Persistence Of Visions” is also streaming via Metal Underground RIGHT HERE.
CYNTHESIS reunites three of the original members of Zero Hour -- brothers Jasun and Troy Tipton (guitars and bass, respectively, both also of Abnormal Thought Patterns) and vocalist Erik Rosvold, along with Enchant drummer Sean Flanagan. Their first album DeEvolution began a dystopian trilogy of releases, and now the middle installment of the series is set for release with ReEvolution, the engaging storylines of this band’s magnificent anthems as rich as the complex musical arrangements which carry the plot. Mixed and co-produced by Forrester Savell and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side, ReEvolution boasts forty-five minutes of some of the most imaginative progressive metal of the year. Preorders for the album can be placed here.
"Their music can be equally elusive and engaging, sparking both curiosity and satisfaction. Perhaps these are the best elements of any musical work, progressive rock or not. Recommended. 4/5" - Dangerdog Music Reviews
“ReEvolution is clean, powerful and straight forward. It’s a progressive head-trip without needing any added sound clips or special effects, save for the layers that give the album its thick, but not overbearing, atmosphere.” - Metal Riot
"... the overall sound of the music will definitely be of interest to fans of prog bands like Suspyre and Dream Theater, and it’s even possible to pick out some interesting Pink Floyd influences from time to time." - Metal Underground
"Musically, this album flows from gentle acoustic passages to more chaotic guitar riffs and intricate drumming. The album doesn’t feel like just a collection of songs, but a 45 minute long composition that enhances the story." - We Love Metal
